Is she POA now? That would give her a little more say, but even if she is, you'll need an attorney to help you with this - either an elder law attorney or an estate attorney. It's nearly always best do have an attorney draw up these documents, but in your case it's even more complicated, so I'd highly recommend it.

There were never any legal documents or POA papers drawn up. As his wife she currently has that authority right? She is and has been in a nursing care center herself for over a month now and is not "physically able to get around or walk" due to obesity.., so she cannot be released from the facility she is in until she becomes healthy enough to take care of herself , my father is experiencing dementia and gets around just fine but cannot be left alone to wander off or do anything that may dangerous to himself or others so obviously he cannot take care of her either. He is being released from the facility he was in as he has gotten physically stronger and is not a fall risk anymore. He is coming to live with me this weekend. We will have to have and pay for an adult "sitter" agency to come in while we are working, which will become costly. We need to be able to handle his finances and medical issues as she cannot do either while she is in a facility herself to help cover the costs of his personal needs and care. She is several years younger than him, has never worked and receives no pension or social security, so his SS and slim pension is their only income. We are needing to prepare for the possibility of her becoming healthy enough to walk and come home, depending on future circumstances, the 2 of them live together again, but the future is unknown. If things are not handled right financially right now the situation could lead them without enough money monthly to take care of wither of them. We feel/hope she will agree, understand and sign whatever is needed to let us do what needs to be done for both their sakes. This situation happened very fast and have never dealt with these issues. We are trying to keep this process simple as we can yet deal with the changes and complications the best way. By the way, we live in Missouri. Thank you all for any advice in this matter.
